So I was a little bit naughty and did my week 3 run 1 last Friday as I had finished week 2 by Wednesday and was feeling pretty energetic. Everything was going fine until I realised I had forgotten to download the week 3 podcast!! I was pretty annoyed to say the least, as I had dragged myself all the way to the gym (that is no small feat). I decided to improvise as I knew the running / rest times and just used my stop watch and listened to my own music, and after all of that it wasn't too bad!
Run 2 was last night, I had Laura to accompany me this time, the run went well again, I even managed to up the speed a little on the treadmill. I am feeling quite confident about week 3, I have one more run left which I will try to do on Friday - maybe even running outside weather permitting.
My only worry for this week is that on Thursday I start a 'jumping class' - just picture sprinting on a trampoline for an hour! This is part of my new 'get fit, healthy lifestyle mantra', I am a little concerned that this may make the runs increasingly challenging as my legs may not function after the class! Time will tell - but for now I am still feeling confident that I will run a 5k in the first week of January.
